FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Helena

helena-brush-font

Today’s font selection is Helena, a fun, brush-style script by designer Noa Araujo.  He even put together a little video to show how to use the font and apply the watercolor/textured look.  I can see this font being popular on snarky coffee cups and graphic art prints.

Take a peek at all the characters included with Helena below.  And the best part? it’s only $10! and comes with the necessary photoshop brushes to achieve the beautiful textured look.  I’ll be snatching it up soon!

As you may have assumed I have a thing for fonts. They come in all shapes and sizes with elaborate swashes and elegant details. The right font can easily make or break a design. Every Friday, I’ll share some of my favorites and recent purchases here, hoping to inspire a typography addiction in everyone.

I try to keep my font sheet updated with recent purchases, but if you see a font you love on here and would like to incorporate it into your designs just let me know!  Some posts may contain affiliate links.

 

FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Caferus

caferus-font-friday-1

Caferus is today’s font friday pick!  It is inspired by and designed for cafe & restaurant use but I think it would make a charming addition to a holiday card with a vintage feel, or a cowboy themed party for a little guy (or gal!).

Caferus was designed by Flavortype and includes a full layer family, 3 additional weights (which you can see a peek of here) PLUS additional ornaments for only $19!  You can pick it up through Creative Market HERE.

Flavortype has two other beautiful fonts called Heartwell (a brush-based calligraphy script, shown below) and Glowist (a unique textured serif), both of which have been on my wish list for a while!

FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Oak & Ash

Today’s font selection is called Oak & Ash, and was created by James Lafuente.  Oak & Ash is a hand drawn, all caps typeface with a handful of alternate characters & glyphs.  I can envision this font working beautifully for a fun rehearsal dinner BBQ invite or a birthday party for an adventurous little boy.

Like so many of the fonts I’ve featured in the past, Oak & Ash can be had for under $20, in fact – it’s only $12!  At that price you may want to pick up it’s sister (brother?) font Pearl District too!  Pearl District is a slightly condensed display face and I’m sure they would work beautifully together.

FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Amour

In honor of tomorrow’s holiday, today’s chosen font is Amour!  Amour is a beautiful serif font created by Cultivated Mind.  Whenever I see it I am also reminded of Luella, another Cultivated Mind font, I think they could be sisters :)

amour-font-friday-chelsey-emery

 

Amour is a romantic hand drawn font with a slightly retro feeling.  The full family includes 2 fonts in 4 weights, with awesome extras likes coordinating frames and ornaments.

You can pick-up the basic version of Amour for $44 HERE, and the full family of options for $120 HERE.  Hope you have a very happy Valentine’s Day!

I’m not opposed to spending $6 on a beautiful letterpress Valentine’s Day card, (like this lovely one from Ink Meets Paper) but my Valentine does not appreciate such things and, beautiful hand-crafted card or not, it will be headed for the garbage about 30 seconds after he opens it.  He’s just not a card guy.  So, I’ve made my own for the past few years and share them with my darling readers with the hopes that *maybe* someone keeps theirs, or if not, at least you don’t feel guilty when it’s tossed in the trash since it’s FREE!

Here is this year’s card –

You can download the free printable, with (super easy) directions, HERE, no strings attached* :)  You can also grab last year’s free printable card here.

Enjoy!
